Can I adopt my stepbrother and get some financial assistance?

My stepbrother came to live with me full-time after his dad was found guilty of abusing him. Our mom took the dad’s side and my stepbrother didn’t want to be around either one of them anymore. He’s 14 and I’m 23. My boyfriend and I are doing the best we can to take care of him and support him financially but it’s hard and we could use some help. Is there any way I could formally adopt my stepbrother and get some financial support for him from the state? Or could I take legal guardianship of him and seek child support from my mother and stepdad?

Will a prenup protect me from my wife’s debt?

My girlfriend and I are due to be married in a few months and I am thinking about asking her to sign a prenup. I discovered recently that she has a lot of debt – credit cards, a student loan, and back property taxes for a house she owns in Memphis. I’m worried that once we get married, if she doesn’t stay current with her payments the creditors may come after me. Are prenups legal in Tennessee and will a prenup keep me from being responsible for her bills after we get married? I’d also like to know how I find a lawyer near me who has a lot of experience with prenups.
